Digitally Remastered using the Bertha Digital Audio Workstation and its proprietary Audio and Restoration processes. Completed 7/3/2009 by firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will only work on the very best Audience recordings due to the difficult nature of the beast. In Jerry Moore's memory I spent even more time than ususal to make this one special and I think Bertha's audio and restoration processes have brought out every bit of the beauty of this recording.
Rest well Brother.

Aside from that, the psychedelic-era run of Other One > Dark Star is pretty cool and worth a listen.

Kudos to the taper who made such a nice recording with just a stereo pair and analog tape; some of the comments seem to suggest he is/was a well-respected recordist.
I am not a Deadhead by any stretch but I do listen to them occasionally and am familiar with their styles and periods. This performance seems very "mellow" in comparison to a standard performance by this band, and my conservatory-trained ears tell me that the band is a bit "off" at times; it doesn't seem to me that there are any keyboards present in the mix. I have wondered if the Godchauxs were both present here; is it possible this concert was performed as a quintet with no keyboards, or is Mr. Godchaux just wiped out of the mix because he wasn't playing much by this point? Enlighten me please.
Sometimes I hear something that sounds like a keyboard but there are no solos per se.
The nicest part to me is the noodling jam after the drum solos, in the key of C with the marimba-type percussion. Garcia plays some very nice lines; his time is excellent, and he's very in control of his chromaticism and targeting notes; he alters the tonality nicely to take it back to E-minor for Lesh to play his signature lick on "The Other One".
The band is maybe a little too laid back for their own good on this night, and I don't think this is one for the ages, but it certainly has its good moments. They sound like a band having some personal troubles and are in transition, though not necessarily just going through the motions for the money.
Every nuance is apparent in this rare gem.
I've spend hours searching out auds like this one - and now it's time to settle back and soak it all in. Thank You.

1979 was a challenge for we who are Phil Phreaks for in many of that year's SBD's his bass sound is farty. Not so in this masterpiece of an AUD. The bass in full force plows fertile bottomland -- kudos to Mr Ashley for bringing it to the forefront.
Perhaps the performance isn't the best ever but Jerry Moore's recording and Jay's Re-do of Charlie's Remaster makes this a soothing fire on a fiercely cold evening in Buffalo, NY.
Buffalo may be a harsh winter place but the people there rock -- no doubt about it.
There is no Donna on this recording and though I loved her dearly, she is not missed on this particular night. This was just prior to her and Keith leaving the band.

Very sweet show and crystal clear sound. Jerry's guitar & voice come thru so sweetly. Give this a listen. You won't be dissapointed.
